Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope that you had a great Thanksgiving! We are so grateful for all the blessings in our life and feel that we have much more than we deserve. We constantly marvel at the wonderful things that come our way in life! Also, I feel so lucky that I have the BEST husband out there (sorry, ladies!)!!!
We enjoyed being able to sleep in and have nothing on the agenda but to cook, eat and sleep! We had our dinner over at Leticia and Martin's (Jean's sister and her husband) house and then half fell asleep/half watched a movie. (This picture also includes a good family friend, Dina, who has known Jean's family for years. And I am not sure what Martin is doing...)
So, in an effort to please everyone we decided to cook a ham and a turkey...and yes, both of these large meats were to feed only five people! The priests/laurels in our ward do a fundraiser every year where they cook turkeys and roasts for Thanksgiving. They dig a large hole in the ground, season and wrap the meat in tin foil and cook it over night so come Thanksgiving morning around 10 or 11 you have a perfectly prepared turkey. Now I want to cook my turkey that way every year! And my chef of a husband prepared a delicious orange glazed ham, hopefully I can get him to recreate it another time!
